11 Years After Boy Sends Shoebox Gift To The Philippines, He Receives A Life-Changing Message

Joana Marchan

The 'random woman' who had sent the friend request was a woman named Joana Marchan, and she was a resident of the Philippines. Tyrel had never been to the Philippines in his life, and he didn't exactly know anybody by the name of Joana Marchan. After looking through her profile, he realized that the woman had never been to the United States, nevermind Tyrel's small town in Idaho. Although random messages from strangers are common on social media platforms, the woman's profile still stuck with him.
